PlayStation Plus’ December lineup includes Worms Rumble and Just Cause 4

PlayStation Plus subscribers can add three games to their library starting December 1. The new batch of freebies includes Worms Rumble, Just Cause 4, and Rocket Arena.

Worms Rumble is the latest game in the cult-hit Worms franchise. The title is a 32-player online battle royale game that features cross-platform support. The title will be available for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 subscribers.

The game is a notable addition, as it’ll be making its debut as part of PlayStation Plus. A similar strategy increased Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout‘s popularity at launch, making it the most downloaded game in PS Plus history. Sony plans on taking the same approach with Destruction AllStars early next year, which was originally slated as a PlayStation 5 launch title but was delayed and shifted to a free title.

Avalanche Studio’s 2018 sandbox shooter Just Cause 4 will be available for all subscribers. In our review, we said, “if you’re looking for an open-world playground to mess around in, Just Cause 4 provides a nice space for that.”

Rocket Arena is a colorful, competitive shooter that was released in July. The game originally cost players $30, but the price drastically dropped to $5 shortly after its release.

Non-PS Plus subscribers who own Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, FIFA 21, and Grand Theft Auto V are getting a free multiplayer weekend in December, allowing them to try those games online without a PS Plus subscription. The event takes place from December 19 to December 20.

Before December rolls around, PS Plus subscribers still have a chance to pick up November’s free games, which include PlayStation 5 launch title Bugsnax and Hollow Knight.

A PS5 stands on a table.

2022 has been a disruptive year for all players in the games industry. As Microsoft continues to fight to complete the largest acquisition the industry has ever seen, Sony appears to find itself in a precarious situation. Despite being the market leader in current-gen hardware sales and revenue, the current shifts in the industry -- not just in acquisitions -- seem to be stirring some change within the company.

All through 2022 Sony has been planting seeds for what it hopes to be major new growth opportunities outside of its console and first-party studio output. From mobile and VR to live service, subscriptions, and even multimedia pushes, all signs point to 2023 being a redefining year for the PlayStation brand.
